Hey PJ !
It's been a long while since I've been able to post stuff. NDA  + not a lot of spare time to produce personal pieces... I miss it tho and I'll do my best to start new personal pieces.
Meanwhile I've been working on 198X, a collection of gameplay tibute linked by a strong narrative element.
Here is the "Beat them up" hero, I've worked hard on trying to maintaint the 90's feel and flo. I've been studying many games and tryed to give homage to some of the sprites that made me fall in love with pixelart. I'm sure that you'll notice some of the most iconic animations of that era.

Ha ha yeah !  Garou is still on my animation God Tier list =)

You're damn right, I was aiming at giving depth by angling the torso back, but it's not working as I though. The dev was a little hard on this game as the team had to struggle between multiple engines, so I did not had a proper build to test out my animation blending. As the character is supposed to be quite gender neutral I clearly see many little mistakes that push the design both way.
Thanks for this comment, much appreciated !

Thanks !  It kinda yeah, KOF / Garou has been a major influance. Terry and Rock specificly.

 Looks great! I can definitely see the sprite influences from prior fighting games, like Garou(the kicks from Kim Dong Hwan, punches from Rock Howard, and even a bit of Akuma/Ryu). If anything, I think the upper body has odd changes of mass during some of these moves. When he does the kicks, his chest/upper body get small, but when he's walking, his upper body becomes a bit more bulkier than his idle or other poses would otherwise indicate.

 Either way, looks cool as a whole, and I'm sure no one would sweat the small details.

You worked on 198x? The whole game looks gorgeous, I planned on buying it soon. Really gorgeous 16-bit style pixel art.

This super cool, it also reminds me of a character you would see in King of Fighters.
